Steamships SS Columbia and Ste. Claire transported generations of Detroiters to Boblo Island, one of America’s earliest amusement parks. Their 90 years of operation witnessed America’s industrial revolution and social justice movements. In 1993 Boblo Island tragically shut down, and the boats were left to ruin. Today, a band of scrappy dreamers are fighting to save these iconic vessels.
